'''Ann Radcliffe''' (née '''Ward''', 9 July 1764 – 7 February 1823) was an English author and pioneer of the Gothic fiction|Gothic novel. Her style is Romanticism|Romantic in its vivid descriptions of landscapes and long travel scenes, yet the Gothic element is obvious through her use of the supernatural. It was her technique, "the explained supernatural" as the final revelation of inexplicable phenomena, which helped the Gothic novel achieve respectability in the 1790s.
